Two remarkable works, Igor Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale and the Arizona premiere of Brett William Dietz’s Headcase, to be performed by the Arizona Musicfest Chamber Players (members of the all-star Arizona Musicfest Orchestra)—this is a concert unlike any other! A modern Faust, The Soldier’s Tale is filled with Stravinsky’s characteristic melodic edginess and syncopated rhythms. Dietz’s Headcase is a powerful work that transforms a personal story into a universal one, capturing the composer’s recovery from a stroke at the age of 29.
There will be a Q&A after the performance with Brett Dietz and the Arizona Musicfest Artistic Director, Robert Moody.
